  22. I don't think you could respond to this one with anything other than a darker piece. But darkness is a part of life and any given day. And how can we define light if there is not darkness to which it can be compared?

    (From prompt of a stone sculpture of woman under the sea by Jason de Caires Talyor -
    From the Magpietales prompt 100 Hippity Hop )
    By the way Thanks and congratulations on your 100 prompt!
    (Of course I had to relate this to my current read… Mermaid Wisdom by Brenda Rosen)

    Sea Murmurs

    I would have, could have, should have cried
    Real tears for you – but I knew your world was different
    One who thinks there is so much freedom above the water

    I called to you and you came from that vessel
    That you float upon – seeking adventures to and from
    The breaths of my four brother winds

    I tried to tempt you with a tour of my home
    But the depths of my heart were just not enough
    To lure you from the touch of the sun upon your skin

    I will of course miss your affections, directions, intentions
    As real in the moments that they were – you knew my world was different
    One of myths and legends, submerged treasures

    I have though your thoughtful gift – one you will never again see
    Your seed planted, our daughter conceived
    While others may see a heart of stone – I see a continued legacy

    I called to you and you came from the world of men
    That which you thrive upon – seeking the stars to guide you
    That one day perhaps you will set your feet upon

    I would have, could have, should have, cried
    Real tears for you – but your loss will be replaced with joy and I shall
    Adorn her hair with oyster pearls and fill her full of your dreams…

  44. Anybody else having trouble with pages loading? Many, many of the posts that I click on start to load and then go blank, but with the blogger logo and webpage banner intact. Sometimes it doesn't happen until I try to comment, most of the time I can't see the post at all. Apologies for not commenting on more Mags ...

  45. This photograph grabbed me...I was inspired by so many different ways to go with this...the tragedy In Italy gave me pause...so I hope I do not post insensitively...

  46. Congratulations to Tess on the 100th with a huge thank you for taking the time to inspire me (and many more out there)... I haven't been doing to prompts lately (haven't been writing lately) so I'm trying to get back into it... Forgive me if I'm a bit rusty! *smile*
